Bill Summers, General Manager of Spanish Fork Maceys, presented the check to Lana Hiskey, Executive Director of the Nebo Education Foundation.

The Nebo Education Foundation and Nebo Pantry have nearly $ 7,500 more to spend this holiday season thanks to donations from two Maceys Utah County locations.

Maceys in Spanish Fork donated $ 5,932 and Maceys in Provo donated $ 1,515.72. This money was presented in the form of a check to Lana Hiskey, executive director of the Nebo Education Foundation, by Bill Summers, general manager of Macey’s in Spanish Fork.

“We love partnering with the Nebo Education Foundation and Nebo Pantry,” Summers said in a press release. “We are happy when our customers give something back. It’s an easy way to give without hurting too much. We hope to make it an annual event. “

The money donated to the Nebo Education Foundation will go to the Nebo Pantry and will be used to provide nutritious meals to needy students, especially evenings and weekends when they do not have access to school meals.

“These funds are really going to help feed our hungry students through no fault of their own,” Hiskey said in a press release. “Our community is so generous, it just brings tears. Without the generous help of so many companies, Nebo couldn’t have so many great programs. Thank you Maceys from all of our Nebo children. “

These donations were made as part of the annual round-up campaign, where retailers give their customers the opportunity to round up their purchase amount to the nearest dollar, with the intent that the extra money will go to a nonprofit organization.

“We know food insecurity is a real issue that affects one in seven children in the state of Utah,” Sarah Pettit, a representative for Associated Retail Operations, said in a press release. “As local grocers, we are dissatisfied with this and believe that we can be part of the solution. We hope these resources will serve your students well and provide them with a better opportunity to learn, grow, and demonstrate academic success. “
